Two people from Ahoskie were killed after their car crashed in Bertie County and caught fire. A third passenger in the car survived and is stable condition at Vidant Medical Center in Greenville.

Highway Patrol Trooper JV Reid tells 9 On Your Side the Dodge stratus caught fire after it drove off Highway 13 about a quarter mile south of Powellsville. The car hit a ditch, a utility pole, and a tree before catching fire just after 10:30am Thursday morning.

Front seat passenger Curtis Cofield, 46, had his seatbelt on and survived the crash. He was transported to the hospital in Greenville and is in stable condition.

All three are from Ahoskie and live in the same apartment building. They are not related.

The Highway Patrol says they aren't sure why the car ran off the road. There were no brake marks on the highway.
